    The only way to reset it is to unplug it. I have unplugged it for 1 minute. The problem remains. It is just out of warranty about 2 years old.

Sir my printer problem is on printer menu write a clearing paper path what is this massage and give me solution.


Thank you contacting FixYa for your printer inquiry.
This error is associated with either a sheet of paper blocking the paper path or a partial piece of paper that blocks path or trips a sensor. The printer will usually throw up a error code 13.XX on the display and the XX is a number that will indicate where in the paper path this error most probably occurred. Just follow the steps for your error on the below chart.
This link will take you to the user guide which will be helpfull identifying components and providing guidelines for most of the helpful hints and things you will need to know about this printer.

I'm trying to print but it keeps coming up with an error message paper jam, remove jam paper and press start. There's no paper jam and it won't print. I have try talking out the paper from the feeding tray...


Please remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer driver software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
If the printer shows a jamming error then check the input of the paper feed as there can be some foreign objects that is obstructing the detector opto-coupler or the detect switch. clean and check or the sensor is faulty.

We have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N and every time we print the paper jams and we get the "Remove Misfeed A: Internal Path". I remove the jam and when it tries to print again we get the same thing,...


There may be an obstruction inside the printer. Try this....remove the paper from the paper tray and put paper in the handfeed tray (front of the machine) If it feeds from that tray it means that the feed rollers in the bottom cassette are worn.

Says a front paper jam but no paper jammed any where


Your paper feder belt has ink on it and will not feed the paper. Remove the rubber belt and clean it good and clean and use compressed air on the printer tray area. If this does not work open the front feeder tray and set your computer to print from it. After about 500 copys it will normally have c leaned itself and be ready to feed from the main roller.

Copier - Paper does not feed/paper jam light keeps going on.


Depending on the type of machine, it is probably just dirty rollers that pick up your paper (slipping). If you remove the tray, and look inside you should see some rollers (usually gray) that take the paper from the tray. Use a cloth dampened with some alcohol(if you have it) or simply water to clean these rollers (gently).. dry if you have used water, the top sheet or 2 of previously used paper, and try it.

HP PSC 2355 All-in-One Operating Problem


Introduction When the all-in-one detects a paper jam, the display will read, " Paper jam: Press OK to continue ." The computer might display the following message: " There is a paper jam (or misfeed). Clear the jam and press the Enter, Resume or OK button on the HP PSC. " This document will assist in correcting paper feed problems such as paper jamming, print slanting, and multiple pages feeding into the all-in-one. Clearing paper jams CAUTION: All paper jams must be removed from the back of the all-in-one through the rear access door. Pulling the paper from the front of the unit rotates the paper feed roller in the wrong direction and can cause damage to the all-in-one.
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Turn the all-in-one around so the back of the unit is facing out.
  3. Open the rear access door:
    1. Locate the tab on the left side of the door and press it toward the right. The door will shift slightly to the right.
    2. As the door shifts to the right, pull the door out slightly to release.
    3. When the door is released, gently remove the door by sliding the door out and to the left.
    Figure 1: Removing the rear access door c00212276.jpg
  4. Inspect the pressure rollers on the access door. They should be clean and rotate easily. If needed, clean the rollers with a soft lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). If the rollers do not rotate easily, they may need to be replaced.
  5. From the access door opening, gently remove the jammed paper.
  6. Remove the paper stack from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper damaged or bent.
  7. Re-stack the reload the paper into the paper supply tray. Push the stack into the tray until it stops.
  8. Re-seat the rear access door:
    1. Insert the two posts on the right of the door into the holes on the right side of the opening (as shown in the figure below).
    2. Press the tab on the left side of the door toward the right. The door will shift slightly to the right.
    3. As the door shifts to the right, push in the left side of the door to lock it into position.
    Figure 2: Rear access door posts c00212277.jpg
  9. Reconnect the power cord and turn on the unit.
Causes of recurring paper feed problems If paper feed problems occur repeatedly, one of the following might be the cause:
  • Something is obstructing the paper or print cartridge path. Open the cover of the all-in-one and check for obstructions.
  • The rear access door is unlocked or improperly seated. Follow the steps above to remove and re-seat the access door.
  • The paper width guide is not positioned against the paper. Adjust the paper width guide against the edge of the paper.
  • The paper is not supported. Paper should be flat and smooth with no folded, torn, or rough edges. Some glossy and/or coated papers, or reused paper (already printed on one side) can experience a higher incident of paper feed issues.
  • The paper tray is not fully extended.
  • The paper feed rollers need cleaning. Over time paper fibers and dust will stick to the rollers and should be removed. See instructions for cleaning the rollers below.
Paper jam message displays but no paper is jammed The print carriage might be jammed. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
  1. With the power on, lift the print cartridge access door. The print carriage should move to the access area located on the right. If the print carriage stays all the way left, reset the unit by unplugging the then plugging in the power cord. If the carriage still does not move to the right, continue with the steps below.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Remove both print cartridges.
  4. Push the print carriage slightly to the left and then to the right to verify that the print carriage is not jammed. If the print carriage will not move, check for obstructions under and around the carriage.
  5. Close the print cartridge access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord.
  7. When the " Insert Print Cartridges " message displays, open the print cartridge access door and insert the print cartridges. Verify that both cartridges are seated correctly and lock into position.
  8. If the error recurs, contact HP for assistance.
Envelopes The envelope flap can move with the grip of the rollers and cause paper feed problems. Use envelopes with a rectangular flap and/or tuck the flap inside the envelope when printing. The print is skewed or crooked A small amount of skewing is not unusual with printers. When there is too much skewing, the following steps can help reduce the amount.
  1. Adjust the paper width guide to fit against the edges of the paper stack.
  2. Verify that the rear access door is properly seated and locked into position.
  3. Remove the rear access door and clean the paper feed rollers (see the instructions at the bottom of this document).
More than one sheet of paper feeds in at the same time Several paper caused problems can result in more than one page feeding into the unit. Check the list below:
  • Reused paper (paper already printed on one side)
  • Torn or folded paper
  • Textured or coated paper
  • Unsupported specialty paper
To determine if the paper is causing problems, try using clean, undamaged sheets of plain white 70 - 90 g/m2 (20 - 24 pound) inkjet paper, such as HP Multipurpose or Bright White paper. If this paper feeds correctly, the problem is probably with the other paper. Cleaning the paper feed rollers Over time dust and paper fibers will accumulate on the paper feed rollers. This can cause paper feed problems. Follow the steps below to clean the rollers: Figure 3: Paper feed rollers c00212278.jpg
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door (as describe above in this document).
  3. Clean each roller using a clean lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). Rotate the rollers to clean the entire surface.
  4. Verify that the paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate easily.
  5. Re-seat the rear access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord and turn on the all-in-one.
